Exclamation Info about this section - Please Read!

Due to the abundant amount of newbie questions that get asked on a regular basis we have decided to create this new section...mainly for 2 reasons. (1) So our Veteran Members don't have to put up with all the repeated questions and (2) so you newcomers can post without the fear of being flamed for asking repeated or newbie questions.

If you are new to our forum and have questions about your rig or where to find certain parts for your rig we urge you to use the search feature before you start a new thread. Our search feature works very well and chances are you will find the answer you are looking for.

We also want to clarify to you newcomers that this forum is off-road oriented. If you are looking to find out information on how to make your Toyota a more capable off-road rig then you have come to the right place. If you are more into cosmetic appearance modifications, referred to as "bling" by most of our members, don't be surprised at some of the comments you may receive.

Please use this section for all your first time questions before using any of the other sections. This will ensure that your newbie question gets answered.

Also, to our Veteran Members, you are not allowed to flame ANYBODY within this section. It is also not for you to create fake newbie threads because you think it's funny. Failure to comply with this will be harsh. We created this section as many of you were tired of sifting through newbie threads and this is our solution to eliminate the problem for you!

Thanks

If you like reading them then you can certainly help out in this section. We figured that there are a lot of old members out there that don't mind helping out the newbies with some of their questions while keeping these questions out of the Tech sections at the same time. So feel free to lend a newbie a hand in this section!

Shannon, thank you. now can you move it up to the very top so the newbies will see it when they join? otherwise they will hit the first section they see and post junk still.

No crap. I took a look at it and there were about three threads in there. Came back a little later and it was overflowing! Just hope people don't get offended if their posts ended up here.

Later,

the newbie section is nice. after i posted a question about a body lift in the regular tech section, people in the masses felt the need to tear me a new asshole by continously reminding me of my pathetic question. although i did learn, now i do use the search function and i think twice before posting anything.

I just called champion toyota and they have a supercharger 7th inj for $1070. Thats killer. I really like turbo tho. Do you think it produces more power or can't you say either way because sponsor. Great sponsor list. I never knew there was this much stuff out there. Brian

Hey

Ive had this beast for a little while but while warping it to what I want I ran into a prob. With 35 inch tires it rubs like hell and with 2 inch spacers the stock studs wont do up front and I need longer ones. I read a similar thread to this in the other section but it seems like more of a "this could be it" rather than a "this is it." answer. Appreciate any help! Thanks!

'02 taco, 6" fabtech, 35" All Terrains, 2" spacers, Airaid spacer and cool air intake, TRD Supercharger. This is the money I made messing up a humvee in Iraq.
